By Amy Tennery (Reuters) – World number five Bryson DeChambeau will have to ditch last year’s ill-fated Masters attempt and weave finesse into his power riding style to dominate Augusta National at the start of the first Major of the year this week. After winning his first major title at the US Open in September, the muscularly belted DeChambeau was one of the favorites to pick up the green jacket in November at the Masters, which was delayed seven months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the picturesque course quickly humbled the 27-year-old American, who boldly claimed he saw the famous par-72 layout as a par 67, but finished 18 strokes behind winner Dustin Johnson, struggling with inexplicable dizziness. “Don’t mess with the golf gods … every time you start to think it‘s easy, that’s when you’re in big trouble,” two-time US Open champion and ESPN golf analyst Andy told reporters. North, ahead of this year’s tournament, which is back on its regular April schedule. Eight-time PGA Tour winner DeChambeau stunned the professional golf world last year when he returned to the circuit after the coronavirus-imposed rift with a transformed physique and newfound power, prompting some commentators to ponder how. his grip did. Style-and-rip-it could change the sport. “I think it’s really interesting what he’s trying to accomplish. It didn’t work last fall. It doesn’t mean it won’t work this spring,” North said. “No one else can hit him in the places where he can hit him right now.” That power paid off at Bay Hill last month, where DeChambeau won by a blow over England’s Lee Westwood. “He felt like this was a path he wanted to follow, he was quite aggressive, changing his body, changing his swing, it worked for him,” his swing coach Chris Como told Reuters. Como, who recently lent his expertise to retailer Golf Galaxy to help He told golfers to hone their swing, said DeChambeau’s game was constantly evolving. “… the week after Bay Hill, we met at the Players (Championship) and he said, ‘Okay, I have to figure this out, I have to figure it out,’ so he’s constantly trying to make adjustments to improve.” said Como, who counts 15-time major title winner Tiger Woods among his former clients. “Everyone is trying to improve, but he takes it to the nth grade.”
